Education will always be an important subject for news outlets, so we helped teachers understand the media landscape and how to communicate effectively with reporters and different audiences. Review: "The set up of the day was so well considered, in that it built our confidence up over an incremental variety of platforms...starting with pre-recorded radio interviews, then live, then to pre-recorded television, zoom to television live, then live TV on
location. One of the highlights for me was the regular feedback after each interview...I actually think it's helped me be a better communicator outside of a media context as well."
How does it feel to have climbed the NHS tree as a woman? From the school run to managing a £6 Billion budget...juggling bedtime routines with managing public health during Covid. What can we do to support more queens of multi-tasking in our health service? In this podcast 'Health and Care Now' we talk sexism, racism and ageism. @NENC_ICS CLICK HERE TO HEAR MORE
Interview with chef and author Nadiya Hussain in front of a sell-out live audience at Sage Gateshead. @Narc review: "Bouncing off engaging Chair Charlie Charlton, a warm and richly informative conversation shed a fascinating light onto the ‘contradictions’ of being a Bangladeshi woman raised in Britain...keeping the audience enraptured for nearly two hours." (2019) Words Weekend in association with Fane.
Review: “Charlie Charlton brings an unparalleled level of insight and professionalism to the projects she becomes involved in. With Charlie you get, not only a host for your event who can engage with the audience and manage the flow of conversation with other participants, but you also have the advantage of Charlie's journalistic insight. Charlie will research the area you are working in and have a good knowledge of your other contributors – this all makes your event more professional and polished.

“A warm, connected, interrogative host”
Whether it’s interviewing a keynote speaker or chairing a panel on-stage, I love drawing out stories to get the live or online audience involved.
PRIME-TIME SHOWS – BBC RADIO 5 LIVE
2015 – 2020
“Superb job” – Daily Telegraph
I have presented a range of shows on this network station, covering broadcasters like Adrian Chiles and Stephen Nolan, as well as co-presenting Breakfast with Nicky Campbell, Weekend Breakfast and the award-winning Drive programme. The rolling news coverage is an opportunity to tackle stories with little warning, from the Rio Olympics and to the show announcing the death of Muhammad Ali, which was praised by the national press.

“Outstanding Broadcasting” – BBC
I presented the Breakfast Show for almost a decade, beating all previous audience figures for this ARIA-nominated Station of the Year. Since becoming a working mother, I presented my own current affairs show which took a more in-depth and sideways look at the day’s news.
My pacey mix of news and conversation proved a winning formula, bringing in more listeners than any other local BBC station outside London.
I was very proud to represent the network at Westminster for the organisation Sound Women- which successfully rebalanced the genders presenting on UK radio. Aside from doing outside broadcasts from across England, I’ve taken the shows to the Netherlands (where I was covering the report into the MH17 plane crash) and the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
RADIO AND TV ACROSS BBC NETWORK
My investigative pieces have helped win radio and RTS awards for the current affairs TV programme Inside Out. One of my exclusives, about a 100 year-old transplanted kidney, made international headlines experts claimed I’d uncovered a medical world-first.
I have a proven track record dating back to the early stages of the financial crisis, when my coverage of reaction to Northern Rock’s collapse featured on Newsnight and Panorama. Described as “outstanding storytelling”, “ambitious and impressive”, with “exceptional production”.
The media training was absolutely fantastic. Honestly, I learned so much…It was wholly invaluable because they know first hand all the intricacies of working with the media. I actually think it’s helped me be a better communicator outside of a media context as well.
“Charlie hosted our export awards and I have to say she was fantastic. It was an extremely challenging event which moved from an in-person dinner to a virtual ceremony so having the right host to hold it all together was really important to us. Our feedback from delegates was full of praise for Charlie and the energy she brought to the event, and our sponsors congratulated us on selecting the perfect host. The event really was so much better because Charlie was part of it and we cant wait to work with her again!”
UMi - Paul Clark, Senior Campaigns and Events Manager
Charlie is a delight to work with. Not only is she professional, engaging and authentic, her energy and enthusiasm as a conference host is infectious. Being a professional presenter is a given, but Charlie had clearly done lots of preparation for our event, which shone through in her insightful questioning of each speaker. By getting right to the heart of the business journeys, Charlie really helped to make our conference a huge success. Thank you!
